Hallelujah to The City of Peterborough, which is studying the feasibility of building a new multi-use sport and event centre in the City and is seeking public input.
The study is being conducted in two phases, with an initial review of market opportunities to replace the existing Peterborough Memorial Centre and a second phase including a more detailed assessment of potential site locations, concept design and financial implications of investing in a new facility.
The public is invited to join the City's consultants for an information session at the Evinrude Centre:
Date: Tuesday, April 3rd Time: 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM Location: Evinrude Centre, Banquet Hall, 911 Monaghan Road
The purpose of the meeting is to provide background to the work, and answer questions like:
• What is a feasibility study? • Why is an experienced and multi-disciplinary consulting team needed? • What is the process of this study (Phase 1 and Phase 2) and what might the subsequent process look like? • What outputs are likely and what impacts may arise?
The City wants to hear your opinion on the project and the merits of a new venue, and what ideal locations should be considered in developing a new multi-use sport and entertainment complex in or around Downtown Peterborough.
The consulting team led by Sierra Planning and Management will provide a presentation and facilitate a general discussion of results of the study so far at the event on April 3rd, and the issues and choices facing the City as a result of the analysis.
The Study has been underway for several months and details of the process can be found on the City of Peterborough website under “Business/Studies & Projects”.
